Red Hat 5.1 and /dev/lp0: Not detected

Post by YJ » Sat, 19 Sep 1998 04:00:00

When I intalled Red Hat Linux 5.1, it asked if I would like to
install a printer. I chose to install a local printer at LPT1
and picked HP LaserJet 4/5/6 series as my printer model.
(My printer is a HP LaterJet 6L)
And then, a window popped up and at the bottom it said that

/dev/lp0: Not detected
/dev/lp1: Not detected
/dev/lp2: Not detected

Is it a problem? If yes, could anyone please tell me how I can fix it?

1. Red Hat 5.0 vs. Red Hat 5.1

Hello everybody - what a beautiful day it is! Let's not get to funked
up, and get yourself a nice little pink flower to put in a orange vase.
Then grab yourself a slice and sit down and enjoy yourself. It can be
done in lot's of different ways -- just go ahead and do it under the
green sun.

Well... Nevermind.

I'm planning to buy Red Hat 5.1 official to replace my Red Hat 5.0 with.
But before I do that I wonder if there are any disadvantages, hazards or
such with RH 5.1, compared to RH 5.0. Is the installation as safe (don't
forget LILO), and things such as X, sound-support, printers and ppp -
are they still well supported, and not buggy or so?

Thanks in advance,


By the way, don't let the opening of this letter make you think that I'm
not serious enough.
